1 Chronicles 22-24, Luke 8:26-56
48And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.”
I’m sorry, but my first thinking with Legion is to the owner of the pigs. Like, how was the money he could’ve made on the pigs replaced?
Which would be more valuable: possessions/goods or an eternal soul? The townspeople were of the opinion the herd of swine was more of value than this raving lunatic gone sane. Never mind that Christ has just proved his power over not one demon, but a great many together. The point could be here that Satan indeed brought his curse of sin not just to man but all creation- all creation is at enmity with Christ’s saving power. When the demons could not hurt this man as they wanted, by golly they were going to destroy somebody’s possessions to scare others away from following Christ.
